Following Director’s CommentaryThanks to the wonders of the internet, you can also listen to director Christopher Nolan discuss the making of the film for a full 70 minutes, as appears on the DVD commentary.Inside Memento and other filmsIf you ever tried to sit down and work out just what was happening inside Memento, Nolan’s second feature film and one nominated for best screenwriting and editing Academy Awards, then this 18 minute masterclass in story analysis and film structure from Nolan himself should help explain it. Sort of.Lastly The Verge has a great little interview with Nolan that charts a few highlights from his early career with some interesting revelations about his filmmaking process.Cutting Inception with Lee [Smith], my editor, I remember we got to reel three and watched it. It was completely incomprehensible. And it took several weeks of sleepless nights of really trying to figure it out. Weirdly though, when I look back at the script compared with the way that section of the film turned out, it’s not that different. But it can be very hard to find those things. One of the reasons I don’t watch the assembly as a lot of filmmakers do, is it’s four hours long and it’s a terrible film. So I just don’t want to start from that place. I’d rather start from the place of its sense of possibility, which is what you have in the dailies. Learn more about the art and craft of filmmaking from Interstellar director, Christopher Nolan.The soon to be released Interstellar is director Christopher Nolan’s ninth feature film but there is still plenty to learn from his earliest work including his first feature film, Following.Filmmaking Tips from Nolan’s First Feature“Following represents the peak of what I was able to do on my own, just with friends and borrowed resources.” -Christopher NolanIn this fantastic 26 minute interview you can hear directly from director Christopher Nolan as he shares his filmmaking insights and process involved in making his first feature film. Off the back of the festival circuit success of Following, Nolan was able to make Memento, which became his ‘breakout’ film and his first steps into Hollywood stardom.In this post-screening interview from the 1999 Slamdance film festival you can pick up plenty of great filmmaking tips. If you’re really paying attention you can pick up 34 great filmmaking lessons, or, you can check out this excellent article from Natalie of Mentorless.com in which she lists the 34 filmmaking lessons she took away from the interview.Creating on a no-budgetNolan explained that Following was shot at a time where a ‘healthy competition’ was going on between filmmakers who were all trying to make the cheapest movie possible.The $6,000 were spent buying film stock and processing it.Actors and crew were bringing their own lunchThe reason Nolan shot over a year was because of the lack of money and everybody was working.Nolan figured out he could shoot for 2 and 1/2 to 1 ratio, which is almost the same ratio that Shane Carruth for his first feature, Primer. What that means is that he would get one minute of usable footage for every two and half minutes of film shot. The Ratio on a standard film is 15 to 1.The entire film is made out of 1 takes and sometimes 2 takes.The film was rehearsed for about 6 months, just as if they were doing a play. Actors knew the whole film in advance. Each Saturday, depending on the location secured, Nolan would tell them: ‘We are doing X scene’, and they were prepared to make it happened in one take.

Former Indian football team captain and Dronacharya awardee Syed Nayeemuddin believed that there must be a reason because of which Indian Olympic Association (IOA) did not send India’s football team to Asian Games. Asian Games are set to be held in Jakarta and Palembang, Indonesia from August 18 to September 2.Earlier this month, IOA chose to omit the men and women’s football teams from the Asian Games contingent, saying that the teams don’t stand a chance to win a medal in the competition while there were others competing for the top prize.A huge furore followed the decision with Indian football fans taking to social media to express their anger with IOA’s decision. Not only did the fans express their views sharply, even AIFF condemned IOA’s action and called their decision as lacking ‘vision and competence’.However, IOA did not budge from their stance and upheld their decision.Also read – AIFF slams IOA for not allowing football team to play in Asian GamesSyed Nayeemuddin believes that IOA must have a problem due to which they did not send the team and the decision should be respected.”They must be having some problem for that reason they are not allowing,” Nayeemuddin told IANS on the sidelines of an event at the Calcutta Sports Journalists’ Club here.”The IOA must be thinking differently,” Nayeemuddin said when asked about the snub, despite India’s recent good showing under coach Stephen Constantine.”They want athletes to go there and become champions. We have to respect the decision. We have to take it sportingly,” said Nayeemuddin, who also at various points of time coached city football heavyweights Mohun Bagan, East Bengal and Mohammedan Sporting.advertisementAlso read – Football team not cleared, says IOA chief Narinder BatraNayeemuddin, who captained the Indian team to the bronze in the 1970 Asian Games, said present national squad skipper Sunil Chhetri and his boys should do well in the Asian Cup next year.”I think they will do well. We have a lot of expectations from them and I hope they will do well,” said the Arjuna awardee.Nayeemuddin, though, criticised the authorities for failing to give enough exposure to Indian coaches, and went to the extent of saying that though Constantine was good, he would like to see someone from the country guide the national team.”He is doing well and I respect him but my question is, why not our own coaches? We should give our coaches ample opportunity,” Nayeemuddin said.(With IANS inputs)
Yaya Touré ‘I need him, he is exceptional’ – Guardiola offers encouragement to out-of-favour Toure Ryan Benson Last updated 2 years ago 22:45 15/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Images Yaya Touré Manchester City Watford v Manchester City Watford Premier League Guardiola The Manchester City manager has given the Ivorian a boost ahead of the Premier League trip to Watford on Saturday Yaya Toure’s chances of breaking back into Manchester City’s first-team have been given a boost after coach Pep Guardiola said the team “needs him”.The 34-year-old has occasionally endured a rocky time at City since Guardiola’s arrival just over a year ago, with Toure initially caught at the centre of a feud between his agent Dimitri Seluk and the Catalan coach.Man City 8/1 to beat Palace 1-0 Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career?

I admire him for what he has done in his career.”He is an exceptional player. Of course he is going to helps us. We will see [about his squad inclusion].”There was also good news for Vincent Kompany, who could be involved at Watford after missing the 5-0 win over Liverpool with a calf problem.“Vinny [Kompany] came back today and trained with us,” Guardiola revealed. “I think in the next days he will be able to play again. We are okay.”Guardiola also spoke highly of his opposite number at Watford, Marco Silva, saluting their “amazing start” to the season, with the Hornets just two points shy of joint-top City.”Watford is just two points behind us,” he added. “They made an amazing start. He [Silva] hasn’t lost one game [with Watford].”I was really impressed with their performance at Southampton where they dominated the first half.”It is a physical team with [Abdoulaye] Doucoure, fast players with [Andre] Gray and many new players, a good manager. What Silva did at Hull City was amazing.”
eSports PES 2018: Release date, cost, consoles, licenses & all the new Pro Evolution Soccer details Oli Platt Last updated 2 years ago 17:30 28/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Konami eSports Barcelona Liverpool Borussia Dortmund WTF Gaming Konami’s football sim has played second fiddle to FIFA in recent years but is regularly lauded for its realism and enjoyable gameplay Pro Evolution Soccer is back for another season and looking to increase its dent in a market that has come to be dominated by FIFA in recent years.After a costly period in which the standard of the game dropped, the past few editions of Konami’s football sim have been lauded for the quality and feel of their gameplay and the title is gradually making up the ground it lost on FIFA.PES 2018 has now hit the shelves and once again, it is earning excellent reviews. Editors’ Picks Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. To fill you in on what to expect from this year’s game, Goal has all of the latest information about the newest PES title.WHEN IS PES 2018 RELEASED? PES 2018 is out now. It was released on Tuesday, September 12 in the USA and Thursday, September 14 in Europe and Asia.The last couple editions of the game have come out before its FIFA counterpart as Konami bid to get a foot in front of their biggest rivals, and that was the case again this year. FIFA 18 is due for its worldwide release on Friday, September 29.HOW MUCH DOES PES 2018 COST? The standard edition of PES 2018 retails at £49.99 ($59.99) on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It is slightly cheaper – £44.99 – on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.There is also a special FC Barcelona edition of the game that costs slightly more. That is listed at £57.99 ($69.99) on PS4 and £64.99 ($69.99) on Xbox One and includes special Barcelona myClub agents, a Barcelona theme and 1,000 myClub coins as bonus content.FIFA is slightly more expensive in the UK; it’s standard edition will retail at £54.99 but only $59.99, making it the same price as PES in the USA. The two bonus versions are on offer at £79.99 ($79.99) and £89.99 ($99.99).WHAT CONSOLES IS IT ON? PES 2018 has been released on PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.Konami has promised PC players that this year, their experience will live up to that enjoyed by PS4 and Xbox One users. That’s big news and something PES has been working towards for a while, with the quality of the PC version tending to fall somewhere in between the new and old consoles until now.The image above released by Konami, meanwhile, gives users of the older generation of consoles an idea of what to expect compared to their newer counterparts.WHAT ABOUT THE NINTENDO SWITCH? PES 2018 has not been released on the Nintendo Switch.That’s one area in which FIFA has the edge over PES, as EA Sports have worked on a variation of their game dedicated to the new console designed for home and portable gaming.Konami has not released a version of PES on a Nintendo console since PES 2014 came out on the 3DS in 2013.WHEN CAN I BUY PES 2018? You can buy PES 2018 now.Digital downloads of the standard and Barcelona editions can be bought through the official PlayStation and Xbox stores, as well as Steam for PC, at the links below. Standard Edition Barcelona Edition PS4 UK / US UK / US Xbox One UK / US UK / US PC UK / US UK / US You can also order hard copies of the game for all of the consoles it will be released on – including PS3 and Xbox 360 – from various retailers in the UK and US.Click here for Konami’s guide to buying options in each country and region.WHO WILL BE ON THE COVER OF PES 2018? Luis Suarez is the PES 2018 cover star, with the Uruguayan getting the nod over Lionel Messi.The absence of Messi may be partially due to the Neymar situation. Initially, it appeared Konami would put a selection of Barca players on the cover including MSN in its entirety – but then Neymar took off for Paris Saint-Germain, leaving them with a big problem.It appears that deal happened too late for them to redesign the cover of the more expensive ‘Legendary Edition’ of the game, because the Brazil star still features in Barca colours on the front of it.WHAT NEW FEATURES ARE IN PES 2018? Bolstered by a new game engine, Konami are touting seven new features that will be introduced in PES 2018. They are…1. In terms of gameplay, the existing model has been tweaked and refined to create a more realistic game speed. ‘Strategic dribbling’ adds more options in possession and ‘Real Touch+’ allows the use of the full body for ball control. There are also new free-kick and penalty-kick systems and one-player kick-offs.2. On the graphics and visual presentation side, expect improved stadium lighting and turf and true-to-life tunnels at some of the world’s most famous venues. Motion capture has allowed for a “complete rework” of the animation system and the player models have also been changed to create more lifelike kit fitting.3. Online, new co-op options allow for two-against-two and three-against-three group play.4. The popular Random Selection Match is back! This mode allows friends to take turns to choose clubs or countries from which they are assigned a random lineup of players. For example a combination of Real Madrid, Manchester United and Inter stars can take on a team of their Barcelona, Arsenal and Juventus counterparts.Having been neglected a touch of late, Master League has also been given attention with pre-season, a new transfer system and certain presentation elements introduced.5. All of the menus in the game as well as the tactics and team selection screens have been overhauled.6. PES will continue to dip its toes into competitive gaming with PES League, which includes myClub, Random Selection Match and online co-op game modes.7. As mentioned, the PC version of the game is said to have been significantly upgraded to bring it in line with the PS4 and Xbox One versions.WHAT CLUBS & LEAGUES ARE IN PES 2018? One long-term point of frustration for some who love PES’ gameplay has been the lack of team and league licenses, resulting in clubs with names such as Man Red (Manchester United) appearing in the game.It’s still a mixed bag.Official partnershipsKonami has struck official partnerships with 15 teams, with Barcelona, Liverpool, Inter and Borussia Dortmund the most high-profile. Those teams will be fully licensed and have additional features, such as their home stadiums, included in the game.The full list of teams is: Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool, Valencia, Fulham, Flamengo, Corinthians, River Plate, Independiente, Colo Colo, Universidad de Chile, Alianza Lima, Sporting Cristal, Palmeiras, Inter.Licensed clubs & leaguesBeyond the official partnerships, Ligue 1, Ligue 2, the Eredivisie, the Campeonato Brasileiro and the AFC Champions League are all fully licensed with a complete lineup of real-life teams.PES also has the rights to the UEFA Champions League as a game mode, though not all of the teams that have qualified for it this season are fully licensed.Other leagues are hit and miss. The only licensed teams in the Premier League and La Liga are Arsenal, Chelsea, Barcelona and Valencia, but all the other teams exist under new names and can be edited.Everyone is licensed in Serie A except Juventus, and Porto, Benfica and Sporting are all licensed in the Portuguese league. There is also a selection of other European teams that includes the likes of Dortmund and RB Leipzig.The biggest absence once again, though, is the Bundesliga. There is no Bayern Munich and just three German teams – Schalke being the third – are playable.IS USAIN BOLT REALLY ON PES 2018? He is indeed.It’s a slightly odd feature but Bolt, who has expressed an ambition to pursue professional football when he is finished with sprinting, is playable in PES 2018 in the myClub mode (PES’ answer to Ultimate Team). It seems safe to say that he will be the fastest player on the game.ARE ANY LEGENDS ON PES 2018? After a legal dispute over the use of his likeness, Konami and Diego Maradona have worked out an agreement by which the Argentina legend will be included in the game and also help to promote it.In August, Konami revealed that it had agreed a long-term and exclusive deal with David Beckham that will see the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star feature in the game. Like Maradona, he will also serve as a PES Ambassador.WHEN WILL THE PES 2018 DEMO BE RELEASED? The PES 2018 beta edition was available to play on PS4 and Xbox One between July 20 and July 31.It was completely free and was devised by Konami in order to make sure the online version of the game is up to scratch for release day.WILL PES 2018 FEATURE VIRTUAL REALITY? There are no suggestions yet that PES 2018 will incorporate virtual reality.We’re probably more likely to see it in FIFA first, as EA Sports have always put more of an emphasis on the presentation and cinematic aspect of their games – most notably in the creation of The Journey.
Premier League United scored 39 goals in Solskjær’s first 17 games (2.8 per game) from a modest 219 shots (12.9 per game). In the 19 matches since that memorable win at the Parc des Princes, they have scored just 17 goals (0.9 per game) from a higher number of shots – 261, or 13.7 per game. That equates to a woeful conversion rate of just 6.5%. To give some context for that percentage, it would place them 19th out of the 20 clubs in the Premier League last season – between Fulham on 7.3% and Huddersfield on 5.3%.There is a glaring lack of creativity in this United team, which has been heightened in Paul Pogba’s recent absence. The Frenchman has his critics, but the big concern for United is that their best performances and results – particularly since Solskjær took charge – have often been inspired by the midfielder. And he seems keen on a “new challenge”.Pogba has created 11 chances from open play in the Premier League this season, which is five more than any of his teammates even though he has missed United’s last two matches. The attack is set up to play on the counterattack and exploit opposition mistakes, which they did perfectly against Chelsea on the opening day of the season. But, while have a lot of pace up front, they really struggled to break down teams that are organised defensively and sit a little deeper.United’s attacking players are not scoring many goals and neither are they helping their defence. The team has won possession in the attacking third just 19 times this season – only Newcastle, Wolves and Villa have done so less often. When compared to their rivals to reach the top six, United are poor at pressing their opponents. For all their talent, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are not renowned for their hard work off the ball. Alexis Sánchez was supposed to fill that void but he failed spectacularly. Diego Simeone: ‘If I want something I go after it ad nauseam’ La Liga team of the week Tuchel must curb hype after Neymar completes PSG’s perfect week Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Many fans were happy to see Sánchez and Romelu Lukaku join Inter in the summer, but they are now stuck with a side that lacks versatility and cohesion in defence and attack. They are predictable and it’s difficult to see that changing any time soon.Something has to change or the club risks losing its place in the top six, let alone the top four. The extent of the regression from Solskjær’s early reign – both in terms of attacking quality and confidence – suggests that the Norwegian is not the man to come up with a solution.Premier League team of the week Share on Pinterest Share via Email Infographic:WhoScored Infographic:WhoScored Guardian Sport Network Manchester United were lethargic against West Ham at the London Stadium on Sunday and their shortcomings were punished. It was the first game of the season in which United failed to score, but their toothlessness in attack has been a real issue for some time. Having previously been concerned about their team’s defence, fans should be worried about the state of their attack. This team is struggling to exert any dominance in matches.Since their stunning 3-1 victory over PSG in the Champions League in March, United have played 19 games and scored just 17 goals. They have only scored more than a single goal in three of those 19 games (their 2-1 win against Watford in March, 2-1 win against West Ham in April and 4-0 victory over Chelsea on the opening day of this season).For a club of Manchester United’s stature, this is a big concern. It is also an alarming decline from the impact Ole Gunnar Solskjær enjoyed initially after he replaced José Mourinho. There was always likely to be a drop-off after that honeymoon period but that doesn’t render the scale of their collapse as irrelevant or excusable. Manchester United’s shot-conversion rate during Solskjær’s first 17 matches in charge – up to and including the 3-1 win at PSG – was a whopping 17.8%. For context, Liverpool had the best conversion rate in the Premier League last season at 15%.

A three-day Capacity Development Workshop aimed at helping to move Jamaica’s Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) agenda forward and empowering administrators is in progress at the University of Technology (UTech).Hosted by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization and Vocational Education (UNESCO-UNEVOC), in association with HEART Trust/NTA and UTech, the workshop, which opened today (October 9), is being held under the theme ‘Moving to Action through Collaborative Capacity Development’.In his message read by Senior Director, TVET Development and Support, HEART Trust/NTA, Dr. Marcia Rowe-Amonde, Executive Director, HEART Trust/NTA, Dr. Wayne Wesley, said the aim of the three-day workshop is to directly address two of the three main pillars of the UNESCO TVET Strategy for 2016-2021.These include Fostering youth development and entrepreneurship, and facilitating the transition to green economies and sustainable societies.“Youth employment is an area that requires attention and resources. A number of Caribbean territories need access to quality training and certification, such as the Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ) if they are to break the cycle of being disadvantaged and be integrated in the labour market as skilled and productive citizens,” Dr. Wesley said.“Regional citizens also need opportunities to establish and sustain entrepreneurial ventures. The prosperity of the region is hinged on the ability of entrepreneurs to use scarce resources efficiently to start and sustain successful enterprises,” he added.Dr. Wesley said TVET aims to help not only Jamaica’s unattached and skills-seeking youth, but youth and others in the Caribbean region and nations such as Canada, who are a part of UNESCO-UNEVOC’s TVET programme.“According to data from the International Labour Organization (ILO), 73.4 million young people were estimated to be unemployed in 2015 (13.1 per cent youth unemployment rate), and this figure is expected to increase in most regions by 2017.Youth need access to quality training and certification, such as the Caribbean Vocational Qualification, if they are to break the cycle of being disadvantaged and be integrated into the labour market as skilled and productive citizens,” he said.International Development Officer, Bow Valley College in Canada, Mr. Tristan Cole, who also spoke, told JIS News that the aim is to share information, build relationships between partners and to look for new ways to collaborate and build the capacity of stakeholders in education.Mr. Cole said he would like to develop more partnerships from the workshop and, hopefully, have exchange programmes between Canada and Jamaica.Dean of the Faculty of Education and Liberal Studies, UTech, Dr. Rohan Lewis, said he is looking forward to the insights and opportunities being presented at the workshop, especially with Canada. A three-day Capacity Development Workshop aimed at helping to move Jamaica’s Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) agenda forward and empowering administrators is in progress at the University of Technology (UTech). Dr. Wesley said TVET aims to help not only Jamaica’s unattached and skills-seeking youth, but youth and others in the Caribbean region and nations such as Canada, who are a part of UNESCO-UNEVOC’s TVET programme.

Nainital: The Uttarakhand High Court has passed an order denying maternity leave to women in government jobs in case of the third child.In an order dated September 17, Chief Justice Ramesh Rangnathan and Justice Alok Kumar Verma of the high court quashed an earlier order by a single bench. The double bench of the high court overruled the single bench order accepting the contention of the state government, which had challenged the single bench order issued by Justice Rajeev Sharma in July 2018. The single bench order had been delivered on a PIL filed by Haldwani-based nurse Urmila Masih challenging a government rule not to provide maternity leave to women in case of a third child. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra SinghCiting the rules of the Act, Masih had said that the government’s rule to not provide maternity benefits in case of a third child violates Article 42 of the Constitution of India and Section 27 of the Maternity Benefit Act. The government challenged the order of the single bench by filing a special appeal and contending that the petitioner could not claim benefits of the maternity act as she already had two children and could not be granted maternity leave for her third child in consonance with the “second provision of the fundamental rule 153”. The second provision of the fundamental rule 153 of the financial handbook of the Uttar Pradesh Fundamental Rules adopted by Uttarakhand denies maternity leave to women for the third child. After hearing the case, the bench rejected the order of the single bench accepting the government’s special appeal.

Los Angeles: Singer Hayley Kiyoko says that being gay has become her “biggest strength” after years of living life in fear of other people not accepting her. “My biggest weakness growing up was that I was gay and I was different from everyone else and now it’s become my biggest strength because it’s empowered me,” said Kiyoko, 28. “I really feared growing up because I was like, life is going to be so difficult and people are just not going to understand,” the “Curious” singer explained. “And going into my music career, I was just like, if I’m scared, everyone else will be. So, I have to embrace who I am, I have to be the brave one because if I take that first step, everyone else will follow.” She opened up about self love on an episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show”, reports “people.com”.
Believe it or not but an unregulated supply of “love” hormone from the brain may be the reason behind obsessive sex thoughts and a compulsion to perform sexual acts in some people characterized as hypersexuals. A new study on men and women with hypersexual disorder has revealed a possible role of hormone oxytocin, also known as “cuddle” or “love” hormone. Hypersexual disorder, or an overactive sex drive, is recognized as a compulsive sexual behaviour disorder, listed as an impulse-control disorder by WHO. Also Read – The Puja carnivalWhile prevalence estimates vary, literature indicates that hypersexual disorder affects 3-6 per cent of population globally. “We set out to investigate the epigenetic regulatory mechanisms behind hypersexual disorder so we could determine whether it has any hallmarks that make it distinct from other health issues,” said lead author Adrian Bostrom from Uppsala University, Sweden. “The team investigated 8,852 regions of DNA methylation associated to nearby microRNAs to identify any variations between samples. Also Read – Wave City brings special offers this NavratraThey also compared their findings to samples from 107 subjects, 24 of whom were alcohol-dependent, to explore an association with addictive behaviour. Results identified two regions of DNA that were altered in hypersexual disorder patients. Analysis revealed that the microRNA targets genes that are normally expressed at particularly high levels in the brain and that are involved in the regulation of the hormone oxytocin. Previous studies have demonstrated that oxytocin is associated with the regulation of social and pair-bonding, sexual reproduction and aggressive behaviour in both men and women. The comparison with alcohol-dependent subjects revealed the same DNA region to be significantly under-methylated, suggesting that it may be primarily associated with the addictive components of hypersexual disorder, such as sex addiction, dysregulated sexual desire, compulsivity and impulsivity, said the study published in the journal Epigenetics. The finding could potentially open the door to treating the disorder by engineering a way to suppress its activity. “Further research will be needed to investigate the role of microRNA and oxytocin in hypersexual disorder, but our results suggest it could be worthwhile to examine the benefits of drug and psychotherapy to reduce the activity of oxytocin,” said Professor Jussi Jokinen from Umea University, Sweden.
New Delhi: Saudi Arabia, the world’s biggest oil exporter, is looking at investing USD 100 billion in India in areas of petrochemicals, infrastructure and mining among others, considering the country’s growth potential. Saudi Ambassador Dr Saud bin Mohammed Al Sati has said India is an an attractive investment destination for Saudi Arabia and it is eyeing long-term partnerships with New Delhi in key sectors such as oil, gas and mining. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange framework “Saudi Arabia is looking at making investments in India potentially worth USD 100 billion in the areas of energy, refining, petrochemicals, infrastructure, agriculture, minerals and mining,” Al Sati told PTI in an interview. He said Saudi Arabia’s biggest oil giant Aramco’s proposed partnership with Reliance Industries Ltd reflected the strategic nature of the growing energy ties between the two countries. The envoy said investing in India’s value chain from oil supply, marketing, refining to petrochemicals and lubricants is a key part of Aramco’s global downstream strategy.

The envoy said the vision 2030 of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman will also result in significant expansion of trade and business between India and Saudi Arabia in diverse sectors. Under vision 2030, Saudi Arabia plans to diversify the Saudi economy while reducing its economic dependence on petroleum products. Saudi Arabia is a key pillar of India’s energy security, being a source of 17 per cent or more of crude oil and 32 per cent of LPG requirements of India. The envoy said more than 40 opportunities for joint collaboration and investments across various sectors have been identified between India and Saudi Arabia in 2019, adding the current bilateral trade of USD 34 billion will undoubtedly continue to increase. “There is huge untapped potential available in merchandise trade, particularly in non-oil trade and we are enhancing cooperation in economic, commercial, investment, cultural and technological fields,” the envoy said. Asked about Saudi Arabia’s plan to issue initial public offering of Aramco’s stock, being seen as world’s largest IPO, he said it will open up the company to the wider world. “Consistent with the vision 2030 goals, Saudi Aramco is pursuing new opportunities toward creating a world leading downstream sector in Saudi Arabia,” he said. On future energy ties with India, he said the bilateral energy ties have grown beyond the supply of crude oil, refined products and LPG to a more comprehensive partnership that focusses on investments and joint ventures in petrochemical complexes and cooperation in exploration. “India’s invitation to Saudi Arabia to invest in its strategic petroleum reserve reflects the trust and goodwill the two countries share,” he said. Talking about ‘Vision 2030’, Al Sati said Saudi Arabia is working towards transforming its economy and looking at a post-oil age of world-class technological research, start-up and entrepreneurial vigour. “The entire development strategy of the kingdom rests on three pillars – to build a vibrant society, a thriving economy and an ambitious nation,” he said. “The World Bank too has ranked the kingdom as the fourth largest reformer within G20. The number of foreign investment licenses granted in Saudi Arabia in the first quarter of 2018 increased by 130 per cent,” he said. The envoy also talked about Saudi Arabia’s new residency permit scheme for qualified international expatriates. “This move is expected to attract leading global innovators and investors to live and work in Saudi Arabia, and help drive the private sector growth needed to realise the goals set out in Saudi Vision 2030,” he said. Asked whether Saudi Arabia will increase oil supply to India to address the shortfall due to curb on import of oil from Iran, the envoy said his country is committed to India’s energy security and will meet any shortfall that may arise due to disruptions from other sources. “As one of the world’s leading energy producers, the kingdom will continue working constructively with other producers within and outside OPEC to maintain market stability, thus protecting all the interests of producers and consumers alike,” he said. OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) is a 14-nation powerful bloc of oil producing countries.
